Tracy Morgan TV series update: 'His show will be waiting for him'

One thing Tracy Morgan doesn’t have to worry about: The status of his new TV series.

FX Networks released a statement Tuesday about their untitled upcoming project starring the hospitalized actor-comedian; a half-hour comedy series  created by the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia team.

“The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident,” read the statement. “We will support Tracy and his family in every way possible throughout his recovery. At the point when Tracy has recovered and decides that he is ready to go back to work, his show will be waiting for him. Right now our thoughts and prayers remain with Tracy, the other victims of the accident, and their families.”

Morgan was hospitalized early Saturday after his limo was slammed by a truck on the New Jersey turnpike. The truck caused a six-car collision that killed comic James “Jimmy Mack” McNair and left three — including Morgan — with serious injuries. FX’s comedy-channel spin-off FXX ordered 10 episodes of the Morgan show in April from creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. The series was originally scheduled to begin in August and slated to debut in January on FXX along with Sunny.

Tracy Morgan will host the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan will host the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Given his raunchy brand of stand-up comedy, it should be quite a night. The live show, from Las Vegas, will air May 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

“When you look at the artists who have come up through Billboard over the years, it’s incredible,” Morgan said in a statement. “And how can you say no when Prince is going to be there!”

Along with Prince, who is receiving the Billboard Icon Award, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Miguel are also all slated to perform.

Tracy Morgan talks 'Scare Tactics' return, seeing 'The Exorcist' when he was 8 years old

Syfy’s hidden-camera scream fest Scare Tactics is back tonight with a marathon of seven new episodes starting at 7:30 p.m. ET. Though host Tracy Morgan doesn’t like to single out any pranks as his favorite — he loves them all — he will say fans of the show won’t want to miss his cameo in episode 2 (8 p.m. ET), when a young man on his first day in the office of a private security firm becomes the point person in talks with the kidnappers of famous client Tracy Morgan. We caught up with Morgan late last week:

Entertainment Weekly: How did you set the ransom at $3 million? I feel like you might be worth more.

Tracy Morgan: (Laughs) The writers did a great job. We wanted to make the stakes high, and that’s what we did.

I almost wish they’d have told the young man that you died, since he was warned your fate was in his hands.

I don’t know what the writers were thinkin’, but I’m glad we didn’t. We don’t want to freak the kid out like THAT. He may be a big fan of Tracy Morgan, he don’t want to see me die. READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock' first look: Liz and Jack talk puzzles and, er, positions -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

30 Rock‘s return next Thursday will be bittersweet. As the title of season 7’s premiere indicates, this is “The Beginning of the End” — the first episode of Tina Fey’s sitcom’s last season. At least we know that the show will hit the ground running: the premiere features Jack (Alec Baldwin) developing an “unusual business strategy” that seems to involve driving NBC into the ground, Jenna (Jane Krakowski) doing her best bridezilla impression, and Hazel (Kristen Schaal) and Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) inviting Tracy (Tracy Morgan) to a dinner party at the “condemned site of the Candy Man Murders” — a.k.a. their apartment.

But before the madness begins, Liz (Fey) and Jack have their annual short catching-up powwow. She tells him how she spent her hiatus — hint: it involves a lot of puzzles — and that she and Criss (James Marsden) are “trying.” He, of course, wastes no time making her feel uncomfortable. Get a first look at their quippy exchange below:
